Task creation through API

Hello,

I want to create a task on Account object through API.
Could anyone suggets the way to accomplish this.
Also I want to select  the 'send notification email' checkbox while creating the task through API, just the same way we do while creating a task through UI.


Thanks,

You may use the DataLoader (https://developer.salesforce.com/page/Data_Loader) or Workbench (https://developer.salesforce.com/page/Workbench) to create records VIa the API.
